Afinia Wins RAPID 2015 Exhibitor Innovation Award for H800 3D Printer

Posted by Frank Quinlisk on

We are proud to announce that we’ve received the RAPID 2015 Exhibitor Innovation Award for our H800 3D printer. Pre-orders for the H800 begin shipping in June, with new orders shipping in July.  The large build size, HEPA filtration system, and unbeatable Afinia support make this a highly sought-after 3D printer.

“RAPID would like to congratulate Afinia 3D on winning the RAPID 2015 Exhibitor Innovation Award for their Afinia H800 3D Printer. The RAPID Exhibitor Innovation Award recognizes the most innovative new products or services exhibited at RAPID that are judged to have the greatest potential impact on the industry,” said Maria Conrado, Event Manager.

Afinia 3D was selected as the award recipient by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ (SME) Rapid Technologies & Additive Manufacturing (RTAM) Committee.

John Westrum, Vice President, and Zack Sterzinger, Sales Representative, were happy to accept the award, while exhibiting the Afinia 3D printers at the RAPID event. “We’ve listened to our customers and used their feedback to provide a printer that we feel will truly meet their needs,” said Westrum. “The H800 has undergone months of testing and preparation to ensure that it meets the high standards that Afinia 3D sets for all of our products, and we are looking forward to seeing what our customers will create with the bigger build area.”

The H800 has a build area 5x larger (10 x 8 x 8 inches) than the Afinia 3D H480, and includes additional enhancements such as a HEPA filtration system, fully-automated leveling and height sensing, ultra-fine 100-micron print resolution, and one button filament-reel changing. Although the H800 includes many more features than the H480, the H800 delivers an “out-of-the-box 3D printing experience,” arriving fully assembled with easy-to-install software for PC and Mac.
